Comey said his department conducted a thorough scrutiny.
The Federal Investigation Bureau (FBI) on Sunday announced that no criminal charges have been filed against Hillary in connection with her use of the private email server, thus ending the uncertainty that put the Democratic campaign in the offensive mode.
During the second week of October, FBI Director James Comey broke the momentum of the Clinton campaign by sending a letter to the congress claiming that his agency has got access to more emails sent by Clinton using her private email server while she was the Secretary of States under Obama’s first term as the President.
On Sunday, Comey announced that his department conducted a thorough scrutiny of the new set of emails and found nothing incriminating against the Democratic presidential candidate to slap criminal charges.
“During that process, we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state,” Comey said.
He added: “Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July.”
According to reports, the announcement of Comey on Sunday could put an end to Hillary’s ordeal forever as the agency has decided to close the case regarding her email practices.
In the meanwhile, the announcement of Comey has already done the damage for the Democrat as she saw a fall in her points against the republican rival Donald Trump who made full use of the situation with glee, putting his campaign in attack mode.
More importantly, Trump succeeded in his attempt to tar the Clinton campaign and many media houses reported that he managed to tie points with Clinton – a scenario that was thought impossible a month back when Hillary was leading 12 points up in the race to the White House.
That said, according to reports the latest announcement of the FBI chief will shower fresh energy to the Clinton campaign as it nears the final few hours of the D-Day.
The Clinton camp is hopeful that those who were on the sidelines will now take the democratic side after Hillary has passed the litmus test, giving her a clear lead over the Republican in the final lap before Tuesday’s election.
Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon wrote on Twitter, “We’re glad this issue is resolved but for the record, this could easily have been learned before 1st letter was sent.”
Donald who used the FBI report as a trump card in his election rallies during the past few days while addressing a rally in Michigan questioned the diligence of the FBI inquiry and said he is confident that the allegations made against Clinton will not vanish off so easily.
Trump said: “The investigation will go on, the rank-and-file special agents won’t let her get away with her terrible crimes.”
As the election is due in another 24 hours, the race to the White House has become a never before seen battle as both candidates are indulged in a negative campaign, which is not a good sign for the Americans.
Since the beginning of the campaign, both Hillary and Trump have shown greater interest in undervaluing the each other rather than giving emphasis to their achievements and forte. This has created a situation where the voters have to make up their mind for the less sinned.
Both Clinton and Trump will be doing their last-minute campaign in key battleground states that will decide who will cut the rope first in the race to the White House.
According to Reuters, the battle has become so close with Hillary getting a minuscule lead after the FBI Director said no criminal charges has been impeached on Hillary for her dubious email practices.
House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan came out strong against Clinton’s email practice saying: “She simply believes she’s above the law and always plays by her own rules. He also added that by using a private email server, Hillary who was then the Secretary of states “compromised our national security.”
